I’ve been faithful with the Prune Juice/Miralax cocktail every afternoon and the constipation is getting better, thank goodness. I’ve noticed just a little bit of hand jerking when I mean to single click on the computer, but not as much as I was doing it on the Neurontin. One thing I am doing differently this time is to continue to use the suppositories, even if my digestive tract is behaving itself. At least for now I am pleased with my progress with those problems.
We continue to be busy with our toy sales, and I stay busy every day trying to keep up with the Lost Toys Search Service. Ever since I changed the routine to give me more time on the requests and less on the searches themselves I have managed to stay caught up most days. That’s quite a contrast to the 60 or so requests I was behind on before I decided I had to make a change.
The Search Service is a way to help people in an unselfish way, and that positive energy helps me through most days in a good frame of mind.
The house is bit by tiny bit getting straightened back up, with a bunch more stuff going out to the garage for our next sale. We may not have pretty weather again until Spring, but with Alabama weather you just never know what you’ll get on any given day.
I never have been into Feng Shui, or however it is spelled, but I can testify that it’s easier to get work done in an uncluttered environment. So I keep chipping away at the clutter and all those piles and stashes that have taken up residence with us. Each one conquered leaves me feeling that much better about myself.
I know that some people get more depressed as the Holidays approach, but thank goodness I thoroughly enjoy each ritual and family tradition. I can’t say I enjoy shopping, but we have such a small family that there’s not much of that to do anyway. Most of our time is spent finding all kinds of odds and ends to go in everyone’s stockings, big kids’ and children’s, too. And the wonderful music is the best of all.
I look forward to being with all our family at our grandchildren’s house this year, as always. Just thinking about it makes me smile.
